Sunbrella Assure fabric is tough on stains, but easy on the environment.

Standard Textile Interiors is excited to partner with Sunbrella Contract on a new, sustainability-focused innovation — Sunbrella Assure, a fluorine-free technology that delivers water repellency, stain resistance, and enhanced durability. Fabrics featuring Sunbrella Assure go beyond being easy to clean and abrasion resistant, they actively contribute to improving the environment. These distinctive fabrics bring new opportunities to create healthy and sustainable indoor and outdoor spaces that are still hardworking.

What does ‘Fluorine-Free’ mean?

Fluorine-free products contribute to lowering the negative impact on our world and our health. Whether the project is designing waiting rooms, senior living residences, doctors’ offices, or hotel lobbies, guest rooms, and common spaces, Sunbrella Assure can give designers peace of mind that they are contributing toward a wholly healthy, sustainable space for places that need an extra touch of care.

Plant Power!

Sunbrella Assure offers stain resistance through a proprietary bio-based formula that combats the absorption of water-based spills and messes without the use of fluorochemicals. Oil-based stains can be removed easily by following the cleaning and care guide. The base compound in this technology contains 63% renewably sourced content derived from a variety of plant-based sources, carefully selected to be from non-genetically-modified (non-GMO) and non-food-source feedstock.

High Performance in High Traffic Areas

Highly durable, Sunbrella Assure supports abrasion resistance up to 100,000 double rubs. Fabrics featuring this new technology deliver on these high-performance standards while fulfilling the Sunbrella brand promise of design and function, as well as staying soft to the touch.

“Sunbrella Assure is yet another example of how we continue to build on our legacy of smart design and environmentally conscious actions,” said Steve Pawl, chief marketing officer at Sunbrella. “Sunbrella Assure brings together the benefits of fluorine-free technology with the leading design, performance and warranty that we’re known for and has been counted on for 60 years.”

Other benefits of Sunbrella Assure include:

  • Fade-resistant
  • Bleach-cleanable and able to be sanitized
  • PFC-Free
  • GREENGUARD Gold certified
  • Achieves OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and Facts Silver Certifications
